1

Rectus Capitis Posterior Major Origin

Spinous process of vertebra C2

2

Rectus Capitis Posterior Major Insertion

Lateral part of inferior nuchal line of occipital bone

3

Rectus Capitis Posterior Minor Origin

Posterior tubercle of posterior arch of vertebra C1

4

Rectus Capitis Posterior Minor Insertion

Medial part of inferior nuchal line of occipital bone

5

Obliquus Capitis Inferior Origin

Posterior tubercle of posterior arch of vertebra C2

6

Obliquus Capitis Inferior Insertion

Transverse process of vertebra C1

7

Obliquus Capitis Superior Origin

Transverse process of vertebra C1

8

Obliquus Capitis Superior Insertion

Occipital bone between superior and inferior nuchal lines

9

two things exiting foramen magnum

vertebral artery, CN 11

10

blank begins at foramen magnum while blank ends

spinal cord, medulla oblongata

11

part of occipital bone that articulates with atlas

occipital condyles

12

part of occipital bone anterior to foramen magnum

basilar part

13

these develop due to stress from muscles pulling over the lifetime on the occipital bone

superior/inferior nuchal lines

14

accessory veins and the vertebral artery passes through this part of the cervical vertebrae

transverse foramen

15

levator scapulae attaches to this part of atlas

anterior/posterior tubercles

16

the suboccipital triangle can extend only the blank

atlantooccipital joint

17

the muscles that make up the suboccipital triangle

rectus capitis posterior major, obliquus capitis superior, obliquus capitis inferior

18

this can be found in the middle of the suboccipital triangle

vertebral artery

19

this nerve innervates all the muscles in the triangle plus the rectus capitis posterior minor

suboccipital nerve
